To the memory of Mrs. Walter Simpson whom we loved and who loved us: a 
friend who had patience with and understanding of our seemingly unimportant 
problems. Considering service to others her greatest joy and continuing in that 
service until her last days, she was a noble woman. We lovingly and gratefully 
dedicate this volumn of the Stage Coach in her memory.

This Stage Coach of 1950 is a mirror, reflecting the life of the students of Saint 
Mary's. Here her personnel and organizations are represented. Here also are 
the pictures of your friends. No book can tell in writing or photography the warm, 
happy story of the year that has passed. My association with Saint Mary's girls has 
always been enjoyable. This year has added to those pleasant memories. May I 
congratulate you upon your achievements, and wish for you a life rich in service 
and happiness. 

Richard G. Stone 



. . . Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever 
things are honest, whatsoever things are just, 
whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things 
are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report, 
. . . think on these things. 

Martha Dabney Jones 

When years have passed by and we open 
The Stage Coach what a wealth of memories 
will come back to us ! For here have been 
formed lasting friendships; here through many 
associations we have learned to find not only 
the lasting values concerning Truth, but the 
only things which help to enrich life, preparing 
us to meet life's problems and to reach toward 
goals of satisfying accomplishments.

Waste ?|tsitorp— Hoofetng pacfe 

Where did I go to school when I was young? Why I've told you lots of times! Janet, do not slam that door! I 
just cannot bear to hear a child slam a door. That is one thing Miss Bason instilled in me when I was a student at 
St. Mary's, and no grandchild of mine is going to forget it. 

Those were the good old days! How well I remember that petrifying 27th day of September in 1948. I have never 
been so frightened in my entire life! Of course, there were those habitual returners as Betty Bowles and Barbara 
Wooten who were nonchalantly registering again for another year of work, worry, and a wonderful time. 

That first week we took those horrible tests; they were named for some state — I don't remember which one but 
I know it was north of the Mason-Dixon line. We finally struggled through those and our first Saturday came when 
our "big sisters" took us out to lunch and the movies. We had such fun that day which was climaxed by the old 
girl-new girl party where we met all the faculty and so many other people that I still get confused when I remember 

That fall passed quickly with the football games at Carolina and vicinity and Hallowe'en soon rolled around when 
we Juniors gave our party for the school. We had the most horrible house of horrors ! 

Then came Thanksgiving; we stayed right at school until Friday because the polio epidemic that summer had 
made it necessary for us to begin school two weeks late. No, I didn't have polio! ■ Back we came after our vacation 
to wait, not study, until Christmas. We had the usual Christmas round of fine entertainments and our pre-Christmas 
dinner with carol singing. On our halls that night we had wonderful parties and then all we Juniors climbed under 
our desks to finish our research papers, and what papers they were ! Someone said that one of the girls. Cynthia 
Davis, she was before she married, did not go to bed for three whole nights working on hers! 

After Christmas, exams faced us. Thank goodness your children don't have to go through that now. Their down- 
fall shows progressive civilization ! We finally survived until second semester when the fun began all over again ! 
We started planning for our big Junior-Senior dance and it was such fun getting ready. The theme was ""The Good 


Ship Lollipop" — no, I don't have anymore candy — and we gave the dance on May Day. The May Day Pageant 
was lovely, but after it was over the end of school came all too quickly. There were exams, the Glee Club concert, 
the Baccalaureate sermon, and — vacation. You would have thought we were graduating the way we cried! But — 

Once more on September 12, 1949, St. Mary's opened her doors to her beloved "Belles" both old and new. Ah 
that was a marvelous year, children ! Your grandmother and all her cronies were Seniors at last and were looking 
forward to that first Sunday night date when we could stay out until 9:30. Mind you, I said 9:30 — oh, what an oc- 
casion that was ! 

The first week of school was test week as usual. Another tradition shall we say, but certainly not a very pleasant 
one ! When Saturday rolled around, we threw books, paper, and pencils aside, donned our best bib and tucker and 
were off to town with our "little sisters" for lunch and a movie. I do wish you could have been with us that night 
for our Old-girl, New-girl Party. We did have such fun meeting all of the faculty once again and trying to remember 
all their names so that we could introduce our "little sisters." That was a nightmare if ever there was one; but, in 
spite of all its drawbacks, school got off to a wonderful start. 

When Hallowe'en arrived, the Juniors gave their annual party for the school. I remember Helen Humphrey and 
Ann Shuford won the prize that night. They went as May and January from Canterbury Tales and what a pair those 
two did make! Speaking of Canterbury Tales, I wonder why Mr. Moore never made us memorize the "monk" for 
him. It seems to me we never did quite figure out whether he just plain forgot it or what ! But do let me stop this 
silly old age reminising and get on with my story. 

Nothing too exciting happened ... in the groove until Christmas time, but did we cut loose then ! We were so busy 
making plans for the Pageant and the Senior Dance that we didn't have time to crack a book for at least two weeks! 
The Pageant was lovely, the dance was out of this world, the decorations were simply exquisite, and children did 
you know that Santa was an SAE? 

The day before we left for those glorious holidays was a most unforgetable one I must say! It all started that after- 
noon when wc Seniors trembling in our boots, staggered in to take the D. C. test. I'll never forget that sinking feeling 
we had, but when we walked into the classroom, what should greet us but — DON'T SCREAM ! MERRY CHRIST- 
MAS ! C.A.P. MOORE! That made the day! That night we had the usual formal dinner and Glee Club concert 
and then the hall parties when everyone exchanged gifts. Everyone felt as though Christmas had really started. 

The next day we were so mean — we woke the whole school at six o'clock when we tried to sing Christmas Carols. 
I do believe that was the coldest morning your poor old grandmother has ever felt in her whole life! When 12:30 
came we grabbed our suitcase, coats, hatboxes, etc., and were o'ff for sixteen whole days; but before we had time to 
turn around, January 1, 1950 had come and we were back with only the fond memories of the good times had at 
home. We did try so hard to settle down to the books again and to make some sort of preparation for exams but 
it seemed as though it were all in vain. Exams came — and — well, you guessed it — most of us were still unprepared 
to face the grave ordeal. However, by some hook or crook, we lived through them, but to this day, I'll never know 

Second semester moved along fairly rapidly. The Freshman-Sophomore dance was terrific, Tom Jones was terrific, 
and Spring holidays were just simply super-duper terrific ! What does that mean? Oh, that was just a little slang 
expression used when I was growing up. 

Next on our calendar of events was May Day and the Junior-Senior. Our May Day theme was a circus and the 
court were tight rope walkers. Betty Bowles reigned as queen that year and what a pretty little circus girl she did 
make! The dance, as all S.M.S. dances, was grand; and, as usual, everyone said it was the best dance the school 
had ever had. Why children, do you know that was where I met your grandfather? He was the cutest thing that 
night, but that's a story all by itself so we will have to save that for another time. 

It seemed as though that last month of school just flew by. We began to feel a little reluctant over the thought 
of having to leave for good, but there wasn't much we could do about it; and so we followed in the footsteps of hundreds 
of other "Belles" and watched graduation weekend finally approach. The Commencement play, the Baccalaureate 
Service, Step-singing, and the final address brought to a close our happy days at Saint Mary's. Both joy and sorrow 
were mixed in our departure, but as we left, we left with a special feeling in our hearts for our beloved school and for 
all who helped to make it that perfect and unforgetable place. 

And now off to bed all of you, because if your mother comes home and finds you still up she will skin, me alive. 

Good night, dear ones! 

Olivia Lynch and Betty Ray 

Claste $ropf)ecp 

It was Saturday afternoon, July 6, 1975. We were quietly riding around looking at the beautiful homes when some- 
body yelled, "Come to the circus." It's the greatest thing since Charlotte. It was Jo Gaither, a barker at the circus. 
That started the strangest adventure of all time, and we still are not sure whether or not it really happened. What 
do you think? 

Betty Shields sold us our tickets, and Bert Allen Russ gave us a program that she had printed on her own little printing 
press. Before we had got past the gate, Betsy Brown had sold us ten boxes of crackerjacks. She directed us to the 
side shows where Binny Chew was herding people in and shouting, "See my husband, the tallest man on earth ! Also 
see the greatest Hucklebucker in existence, Lou Byram! Watch Frankie' Strosnider swallow swords! Pepper Neal will 
eat fire and use gasoline as a chaser! See if you can trick Martha Nash on a question!" After that build up 'we went 
in to watch them perform. While we were there we saw Ellen Weaver, the biggest woman in the world; Anne Shuford, 
the best mountain square dancer ever; Julia and Vivian Scott, the Simese twins from Raleigh, N. C. Kay Boyette was 
sitting next to her husband, the world's fattest man. We recognized the India rubber man as Gloria Farnell and the 


strongest woman on earth as Alary Frances Gilbert. Last were the "girls," Olivia Lynch, Annie Robertson, Nancy Dixon 
and Sue Burdelle, who were all dressed appropriately for their dances. That was a grand finish for the side shows. 

Then came the animals with Shirley Fox and her collection of long necked giraffe. Beside them was Belly Ray and 
her famous flea circus. (They did everything but bite dogs.) Nancy Harp was frantically trying to get their costumes 
fixed and we could see that Miss Bason's Home Ec. had paid off. Mary Anne Rose and Belli Harriss were diligently 
watering the elephants, while Lib Suiter was trying to climb upon the elephants' heads for her act. Ginny Anne Landis 
with her collection of rare parrots had at last found something that could out talk her. We actually never thought 
she would. Sara Anne Proctor and Lila Rousseau were entertaining their apes while trying to get them into a good mood 
for their act. Evidently they succeeded, for the apes were in hysterics. Phyllis Kelly was playing the organ so that 
her bears could dance. Everyone was unbelievably busy. 

We could still hear the strains of Kelly's organ as we walked on toward the main gate and Helen Brundage's fortune 
telling booth. It seemed as though she had told our fortunes in times past. Sylvia Newson had a little Community 
Chest booth and had exceeded her goal. We were not surprised at that. .1/ Wilson was the new Mr. Anthony, counci- 
lor for the love lorn, and people were flocking to her for advice. Monie Row/and, who was sound asleep, was leaning 
against Liz Everage's hot dog stand . That was another thing which didn't surprise us. We wanted to ask her about 
the west, but we didn't want to disturb her. We looked over toward the main gate and there was Babs Woolen wan- 
dering around with an important look on her face. It seemed that she was owner of this circus and looking for Luke 
Hill and her building crew. Amelia Fulton, the manager, came running by shouting that circus spirit was not good 
and something must be done immediately. Babs told us to excuse the interruption because Aurelia always did gel 
excited over spirits. We asked her if there was anyone else we knew working with the circus. She told us that Liza 
Chipley ran the circus library and Anne Cahoon was respectfully submitting the pay checks. Just when we heard a tre- 
mendous applaus from within the tent, and Babs told us that it was time for the big show to start. We excitedly went 

First of all Jean Wranek sang the "Star Spangled Banner," and then Rosalie Huske, who had charge of the main show, 
announced that Kitty Faucet! was absent. The show proceeded with fearless Suzanne Dawson being shot from a can- 
non into the arms of her waiting husband, who was walking a tight rope. Mary Scarboro hung by her teeth from the 
highest trapeze, and Mary Smith, Joan Stieber, and Cecile Bicketl, were doing triple summersalts through the air on 
the other trapezes. Lucile Best skated between them on the highest tight rope. Such graceful creatures! Was it 
from Mrs. Guess' modern dancing? Next Scolty Kent brought out her trained seals for their act of balancing balls. 
The clowns, Monty Redd, still reading "True Romances," and Anne Badger Smith, not cracking a smile, paraded about. 
Ann Mckenzie and Sara Plolcolm were clowning as usual. All of this was in honor of Betty Bowles, queen of the circus. 
Rosalie announced that Mary Mar Ragland would dive from a fifty foot tower into a tub of water five feet deep, and 
Joanne Liles, Janet Linker and Patsy Davis would ride bicycles down a tremendous slide with a loop in it. We were 
truly amazed at their talent. The band played, and Katie Clifton came riding out on the buckingest horse we ever 
saw. She was proclaimed winner over all the other riders. Next came the bare-back riders, Patty Starr, Jean Stockton, 
Frances Elder, Eunice Bizzell, Brookie Craft and Carolyn Kuer. I never knew those girls were ever acquainted with horses. 

Just about that time we heard someone yelling for her mother. 'Twas Helen Young, and who should come running 
but Betty Browne Lewis and Kalhryne Holmes. We guessed from that that they were both mothers. Skeelie Wilkms 
was doing a remarkable act with knives. She always did want to be a Carver. Last of all came the snake women, 
Jean Lutz, and Virginia McFarland. Imagine former Saint Mary's girls playing with snakes. Could it have been 

The big show was over and we walked from the grounds dazed. We thought that we had seen everybody, but 
there was Libba Roe racing a powerful car around in a circle. She never slowed down enough for us to find out whether 
or not she was a part of the show or just cutting up. We guessed it was a special act. We had seen enough, but 
there was one thing that we didn't quite understand — why was everybody in the circus? Was it the desire for the 
lighter side of life after English 31? We decided that that was the only possible reason, and if everybody else needed 
to be in the circus, we did too. Our first job was to sell peanuts.

Because of the patient perserverance of Bert, the Belles, the school paper, has been published 
bi-monthly. Who, what, when, where and why have been discussed in a lively manner all year 
long. Our thanks to you, Bert, and to your staff.

Betty Bowles 


Under the guidance of Betty Bowles, editor, and the cooperation of Miss Doro Winters, alumni 
secretary, The Bulletin, the Saint Mary's magazine, has been published three times during the 
year. Containing interesting creative writing from students and news from alumni, the Bulletin 
helps keep old S.M.S. girls in touch with school life.

2Tf)e g>tage Coacf) g>taff 

From September 12 until May 29. this, the 108th 

year of Saint Mary's existence, has been the best! We 

have tried to record the year in pictures so that in years 

to come as you flip the pages of the 1950 Stage Coach, 

it will bring chuckles, tears and a great pride that you 

were a Saint Mary's girl.

Out of the stillness of midnight, white clad figures appear, each with 
a burning candle. The Circle walks! It is a ceremony of great signifi- 
cance and solemnity. The Order of the Circle is a secret organization 
and membership in this order constitutes the highest honor which 
can come to a Saint Mary's girl.

The Dance Marshals arc in charge of all school dances, especially the traditional 
"girl-break" dances. Because of their faithful work, Saint Mary's dances have the 
reputation of being simply dc — vine!

IES, whether you intend to become a "career girl" or plan to make 
a career of home making, electricity can be one of your most important 
helpers. It can save you endless hours of work — can give you more 
leisure time — can make your home (and you) more attractive. 
Smart ladies everywhere these days are LIVING ELECTRICALLY. 
They enjoy the difference!

Never gained easily — the graduate's diploma is a symbol of a 
truly great Achievement — one in which every graduate may take 
pride for all his life. 

The Achievement of gaining the confidence and friendship of 
students and faculty is one in which we not only take pride, but 
which we cherish and guard with constant vigilance.

From a pamphlet: 

"Once upon a time a man of business hung a motto 
on his office wall, which read: 'No man is greater than 
his thoughts.' 

"To him it looked like good wisdom and sound reason- 
ing. One day a friend dropped in, and seeing the motto 
said, 'That's a good motto you have there, Bill, but I know 
a better one "No man is greater than his decisions".' 

"And so the 'Thoughts' motto was replaced with the 
'Decisions' motto and Bill's thinking moved up a step. 

Now then, both mottoes are. good, but I believe that 
if the last one was replaced by: "No man is greater than 

his faith," Bill's thinking would take another step upward 
For after all, according to our faith so are our decisions. 
We cannot make great decisions without great faith.
